ways. but i think that 47% tape was lethal. now, he has not lost, and barack obama is not a great campaigner, and when it is in practice, he is a pretty good debater. -- mitt is in practice, he is a pretty good debater. but because the 47% video was truly genuine, because it was him talking and not knowing he was taped, and played into every stereotype of barack obama saw to paint about him, it has had an enormous effect. >> evan? >> it should not be bad politics -- to be a bad politician should not necessarily heard you when people hate politicians. but romney has not been able to turn that into our virtue. there is the reliability problem, and if there is what nina is talking about -- the film makes him look like he is writing off half the country. even though charles says he has to go substantive, and i wish he would do tax reform -- i don't think he is going to do that -- or find some way in the very end to convince people what he is, which the actress is, a decent human being -- she actually is, decent human being. >> romney said, but wt my het aches for theeople i've seen an
that this was not in reaction to the film. lou: he's referring to the almost car toonish anti-islam youtube video that the president and his administration have blamed from the outset despite the claims by intelligent sources that the obama administration knew within a matter of hours that the assassination of am ambassador stevens and three other americans was carried out by terrorists with ties to an affiliate of al-qaeda. now, two weeks after jay's initial denial of what the white house knew, some high ranking obama officials are beginning to contra digit the story that the president and his administration tried to sell the american public. defense secretary, leon panetta, secretary of state hillary clinton now conceding it was an act of terror. still no word, no correction from the man who steered the false narrative, president obama himself. we take up all of this here tonight with the republican strategist who served in the bush white house, and also, negative economic reports having little effect on the market today. lou joins us as does the head of the catholic league, bill donohue on whe
a couple of things. he has to make the case as to why obama's record is wrong which won't be news. he has to address the concern that a lot of people have and 47% video didn't help that he would favor the rich over the middle-class. he has to explain why his economic plan would actually help the middle-class is the best plan for the middle-class. it's not just about protecting romney's rich friends. farce is the president is concerned, if its wash, that is fine. he doesn't need to score an knockout blow. if it's a tie he comes out ahead. i think he'll go after romney and make that same pointed that romney's plans is protecting the rich. and also, this is key since the democratic convention, they seem to have gotten people to feel more optimistic about the economy. polls indicate that people are not as pessimistic about the economy he has to keep up that belief. >> eric: that sounds like it's fascinating interview. we can't wait until wednesday night. >> me, too. this is one of those moments, no scripts, you want to see what happens. >> eric: get the popcorn, get the pillows. you can get a

: president obama addressing the united nations general assembly tuesday, sending a message. how was that message received by the press? he didn't mention terrorism, tr terrorist attacks and mentioned the youtube video. >> i think it was a forgotable speech and media did him a favor, and forgot it. and charles krauthammer-- and benjamin netanyahu got it, the rocky and bullwinkle, the bombs going off, one of the most memorable of the year. while you were following on twitter while the prime minister was mocked for giving showing this that was cartoonist, the outrage over the fact that he would do this was so disproportionate. there was no outrage about what he was actually saying, the idea of iran having a nuclear weapon, was nonoffensive, but that cartoon, seriously. >> rick: judy, you liked the speech. what about the coverage of the speech? >> i thought the new york times played it as the news story of the day. i think for obama, it was a very tough speech. he did talk about the importance of american values and commitment to first amendment which he really hadn't emphasized be

and barack obama it and other people have tried to harness the power of the internet to what extent they could but i think there is a reason why say didn't make an music video about howard dean. it wouldn't quite be the same. also at the very heart of it, this is sort of a dangerous proposition. it seems very fun and happy and oh my god its punching easter bunny but when you apply this kind of thing to the presidency nothing other film is subject to the presidential records act so every scrap of everything and every time you swear because you're mad about something it's all in there. so i think at the very heart, that very thing you have to understand is unless everyone from the senior advisers down to the candidates and the president himself were in anyway nervous about this it would have been shut down. the simple fact is the number of questions people ask me like that's what they are asking is he the same on and off camera turns out to be the case. this is just to the guy is and i think it's why it's hard to throw him off or you see a lot of this in his campaign and you

that obama has gutted welfare reform. i am sure you have seen that if ad that all three of us have debunked. i want to play a short video and -- as an example of this, and talk about why -- this is a video from the republican convention. >> i will be the first to publicly say i was wrong. my objective is for people to know the facts and the truth of all of this stuff. >> you know what you should do? you should go on some kind of truth tour. >> as a matter of fact, i already have. >> or what? that sounds crazy. what is it called? >> it is called the truth tour. [laughter] >> where is it going to go? >> 30 states, 30 cities. [laughter] >> this is from politifact. [applause] they checked a romney campaign claim that obama will end welfare work requirements, rating it "pants on fire." that, i believe -- i do not know what that means, but clearly that would be uncomfortable. in reality, the obama administration has said it will consider proposals from states aimed at finding better ways of getting welfare recipients into jobs. and the washington post fact checker have said the same
